Billy Richardson DVM

Jul 01 2019

Dr. Billy Richardson was born and raised in Elizabethtown, KY. His father Fred was a horse trainer, which meant Billy grew up on the backside of the racetrack far removed from Millionaire’s row. These experiences shaped his entire life and gave him the desire to become a veterinarian. Billy was a studious child who enjoyed math and science from a very young age. When he realized that animal care and medicine was very much like a puzzle, putting the pieces together using science, medicine and little bit of intuition to discover the solution (after all, they can’t tell us verbally what’s wrong), he decided at age 11 that he would become a veterinarian.

Billy’s experience with his father and his colleagues served him well as he spent many summers during high school, working with racetrack veterinarians, tending to the horses before, during and after races. He attended the University of Kentucky for undergrad and was then accepted into Auburn University’s school of veterinary medicine. At the end of his sophomore year, he decided to switch directions and pursue a career in small animal medicine. After graduating from Auburn, Billy practiced in Tallahassee (FL), Charlotte (NC), Los Angeles (CA) and Cary (NC) before opening Trinity Animal Hospital in April of 2016. His goal for Trinity is to become intertwined with the Holly Springs community while building meaningful relationships with his clients and helping their pets live longer, happier and healthier.

In Billy’s spare time he loves to play sand volleyball, spend time outdoors and volunteer at his church. You can often find him on the weekends, riding bikes around his downtown Raleigh neighborhood with his wife Nikki and their Jack Russell pup Birdie.
